A huge thank you to our Princeton High School students who recently shared presentations based on work in their PHS Racial Literacy courses. We also congratulate our Racial Literacy teachers: Ms. Joy Barnes-Johnson, Ms. Patty Manhart, Mr. Scott Cameron, Ms. Katie Dineen, and Ms. Heather Harris.
In addition, thanks to our community partners who made this event possible: Princeton Public Library and Not In Our Town (NIOT).
Please note that there is a new Youth Fellowship established by Not in Our Town for the coming academic year. The fellowship is open to rising 9-12th graders who live or go to school in Princeton.
NIOT Princeton will provide individual mentorship, support, and resources to up to three high school students (“Fellows”) per academic year for youth-led, equity-based work that will benefit the local Princeton community. Fellows will also serve as youth advisors for NIOT, providing insight on racial and social justice issues in their school communities. Each Fellow will be paired with at least one board member (“Mentor”), who will meet with them regularly. Please apply here. The deadline is June 30.
Below are resources used in presentations by PHS students.
